Doubtful. It's topical, is what it is. "Open Water" is in theaters now and the exact same situation in the movie happened off our coast recently -- of course they're doing a feature on it.
What's being overlooked here is that unless Dan is Managing Editor for the Daily News (which he isn't), the story wasn't his idea. Yes, he had to cooperate by being interviewed, but he didn't assign or write the story.
I really don't get all the animosity toward the guy. You'd think he engineered the whole thing just to attention, the way some people here talk about him.
